I am passionate about helping my students succeed academically and achieve their goals. My teaching approach is interactive, adaptive, and hands-on - learning can and should be fun, and I want my students to be as engaged as possible. If I intuit that something isn't clicking, I change my teaching style to adapt to the needs of my students.

By developing a supportive and encouraging relationship that fosters genuine learning and comprehension, students that work with me do more than just improve their grades and scores - they discover new strengths and build lasting confidence in their skills.

I have expertise in special education, specifically helping students with learning difficulties related to ASD and ADHD/ADD.

I look forward to helping you realize your potential and achieve amazing results!

Q & A

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

It's important to learn how you learn! I enable my students with strategies for introspection and problem-solving to help them reach solutions on their own.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Breaking big goals down into smaller achievable ones allows you to quantify results early and often, and motivates you to keep working hard! I like to set a goal for each session with my students so that, at the end, they feel an awesome sense of accomplishment.
